I finished it, and, geez, I kind of enjoyed it, even at my age. Sure, there was lots of eye candy and maybe it strayed from my favorite troutlings, but the fishers seemed to have fun. It may not replace AA (when it's good) or Fr&R as my favorites, but I enjoyed the mag. It's certainly better than the present version of FFM, IMO, and I say that, kind of wistfully, after having subscribed to FFM for longer than many of you young lions have been alive. I even laughed out loud a couple of times at stuff in The Drake, and I can't remember the last time I laughed b/c of something in FFM. It contains only a small bit of k/t and a little how-to, but it does seem to point to the flyfishing adventure and fun of the sport. The Drake fits a nice niche, at least for me right now.

RRT- I have several older issues of the Drake, you could borrow if you'd like. The reason I took such a liking to it had a lot to do with an acticle I read in the first issue I ever bought. It was only about a page long, but whoever wrote it completely bashed the Beav and his company. It was great. It focused on him trying to by a section of a famous Colorado river (which he then tried to sell for twice what he had just paid), the Yampa, I think. I could try to photocory the article for you if you would like. Or if you wanted to I would give you my old copies, except for that first one, in exchange for a copy of "The Trout at the Walnut Tree"? Let me know what you think.

And as far as I'm concerned, it's like I say, drugs are not the problem. Other stuff is the problem.
